With its rustic-chic whitewashed walls and pitch pine floors, Bistro 21 is a refreshingly simple Durham restaurant. Classically executed, bistro-style dishes are served in comfortable, relaxed surroundings - informal and unpretentious, it's all about flavoursome food and easy conversation. Seasonally driven menus offer the big, handsome flavours of bistro classics, sharpened with a few contemporary twists, while puddings lean happily into the 'comforting' category. Bistro 21's ethos is emphatically based around honest cooking and simple presentation; here are dishes to make you feel happy and satisfied. A fixed-price express lunch menu alongside daily specials, vegetarian dishes and a programme of events ensure there is something for everyone.

With no table seating more than eight guests, the atmosphere is warm, intimate and just the right side of lively. The snug-like bar, with barrel-vaulted ceiling and stone-flagged floor, is cosy and atmospheric - or romantic and intimate, depending on your company. In the summer the pretty courtyard is a welcome addition and there are awnings if the weather turns a little cool or indeed warm. To drink, choose from classic cocktails, a good choice of wines by the glass or try a taste of the locally brewed beer.

Bistro 21 can also organise wedding or civil partnership receptions with a truly individual spin. Newly wed couples love the relaxed atmosphere, quirky architecture and flexible menus. And, if your ceremony is at Durham Register Office, Bistro 21 is conveniently right next door
